In the Blink of an Eye

In the blink of an eye
from what appears twisted
comes serene beauty.

In the blink of an eye
from what seems broken
pours forth divine wisdom.

In the blink of an eye
from what is seen as weakness
marches in transforming grace.

Where once others saw only dependence
now they see a walking miracle
as if it has been in the blink of an eye.

Where once they watched with undisguised pity
now they perceive dignity and purpose
as if it has been in the blink of an eye.

Where once they tolerated with unrighteous indignation
now they reach out in wonder and amazement
as if it has been in the blink of an eye.

The years of stagnation and indifference
may feel like an unending term of punishment
but there will come a day of rejoicing
in the blink of an eye.

The whispers of condemnation,
the silence of intolerance
and the shouts of rejection
will be erased in the blink of an eye.

The tin-roofed bungalow surrounded by simplicity and solitude,
filled with love and integrity, life and purity
will be like the mansion just over yonder hilltop
in the blink of an eye.

If yesterday seems to bleed forever,
if tomorrow feels like a weeping wound
please do not lose hope nor sight of the fact
that it will all change in the blink of an eye.
